The article states that "Salmonella is a nasty bacteria. Most person
infected with it developed diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps". I always
thought diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps are caused by overeating. The
poor salmonella bacteria has no room to breath in your system. So it's

"rinsing... can spray juices and any bacteria already there as far as three
feet, coating surfaces with an unseen mist of yuck"That's
why I rinse, and get the Bird to where it needs to be- THEN I clean the sink
area and every where else.. and myself, etc. Once the Bird is 'a
roastin' then I clean again if anywhere else could even remotely have been
within a few feet of 'raw bird' before doing any other cooking. I also
rinse anything in the sink with soapy water and put in the dishwasher before
even touching anything else.Yes, I'm paranoid- but because of
that this article doesn't really help people like me. I'm not saying
it's a bad point to bring up, quite the contrary. I'm just adding that
washing is still important, just with precautions! :)
